I believe the survey is directed to eBooks for all students, not just ebooks for created/purchases as part of disability accommodations.

Many courses offer eBook options in addition to or in place of the paper books for the courses.

Ebooks also have been touted as a way of reducing the cost of text books.

I am very disturbed by your survey. Under the ADA and Section 504 of the rehab act you are not allowed to pass the cost of text and/or conversion onto the student. Yet you survey seems to not make this kind of differentiation.

Can you please clarify! In the answer options you do even allow this differentiation in response. Maybe. I am missing something, as it stands I cannot in good conscience even forward your survey on.

Dear Colleagues,

We are writing to invite you to complete a brief survey on the use of eTexts at your institution. We are gathering this information for a session on eTexts that we are conducting at the EDUCAUSE annual conference later this month. Even if you are not planning to attend EDUCAUSE, we would greatly appreciate hearing from as many institutions as possible to better inform the ongoing conversations on eTexts. The survey will be available through Friday, October 23.

You can access the survey link here: http://tiny.cc/a0br4x<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__mailstat.us_tr_t_b0ahufwobhuxrifty5658_1_http-3A__tiny.cc_a0br4x&d=BQMFaQ&c=8hUWFZcy2Z-Za5rBPlktOQ&r=REZD8fc2AwufInstfW3L5jSLVS8bjZtAodDOhat7yAI&m=2uIs7F-7RFmCDHY2NUy0YsDSNupf5mAQ2KusHz-OFoo&s=y1x_k3FcBjz5WYMC7E5pLMLom8Gd4pwrcqRWFq9Uxno&e=>
